We have eaten here about a dozen times over two years. The staff is usually welcoming, but the food is just not very good and the prices don't justify the portions. They are on the river, but the only dining with a view is a...More

Some of the best wings I've ever had. We sat on the rooftop outside dining area which was great and my wife loved being in the sun for dinner. The down side was that it was not handicap freindly so if you couldn't climb stairs...More

It’s the holiday weekend, I get that. But you’re in a prime location, the place should be packed. It’s not and after today’s experience, I think I know why. Our server was sweet but was poorly trained. She didn’t have but three tables yet struggled...More

obviously, locals love this place. We went for the Friday fish fry. The fried cod was very good, and the homemade chips were divine. We were able to get the last free table. In good weather, there is outdoor seating along the river.

The place is so loud we could not hear each other talk. The prices are good and they do have all you can eat cod - fried or baked. I probably will not be coming back because it's that loud
